The Lunchbox

La Boîte à Tartines

Directed by Floriane Devigne
Belgium, France, 2007


It’s said that opening a box is always risky. In Belgium, there’s an humble object – the lunch box. The commonplace, banal lunch box becomes a humorous analyser of an industrial Roman Catholic Northern European society that, not happy with boxing our food, does the same with our time and thoughts.
